About CUMaS

Committee 2017/2018

CUMaS exists to serve the needs and welfare of its members.

It is a non-profit organization founded in 1994 dedicated to the support of Malaysian undergraduates and post-graduates at the University of Cambridge. CUMaS provides a social platform for members to interact and participate in various activities and events which are tailored for the welfare of its members and to promote Malaysian culture in general. It also serves as a platform to unite Malaysians who are scattered over the many colleges of the university. CUMaS provides a place where members are free to express themselves in a familiar setting whilst in a foreign country.

Our annual flagship events include a Fresher’s Banquet in Malaysia for would be freshers to get acquainted with existing members; a Malaysian Food Feast mid-term for when we miss our extraordinary matchless Malaysian cuisine while overseas; a Malaysian Cultural Night to show-off our rich culture while drawing members closer together; and a summer Garden Party to celebrate those who have successfully finished their time at Cambridge and also just to bring out that post-exam festive cheer. But this is only the tip of the iceberg to a whole host of other events we have and numerous formal dinners, cookouts, sports and just plain having fun and hanging out together.

CUMaS is run by a dedicated student committee, and funded by generous sponsors. We are always open to any feedback, so do give us a shout if you have any questions or comments!


CUMaS is governed by a written constitution that can only be amended during Annual General Meetings. You can view or download the constitution here.
